Austrian Secessionist Silver Lady Face PendantAustrian Secessionist Silver Lady Face PendantAustrian Secessionist Silver Lady Face PendantAustrian Secessionist Silver Lady Face Pendant

This fascinating and very rare, pendant is unmarked but tests to 800-900 silver quality with pastes. It is a product of the Austrian Viennese Secessionist movement founded in 1897 when a group of artists and architects broke away from the Viennese Academy. The idea was to be free to explore their own ideas and in jewellery. They followed on from the Art Nouveau movement but with a more geometric emphasis.

The pendant measures 1 and 1/8” (2.8cms) by 1” (2.5cms) across the widest part. It weighs 5.3 grams.

The pierced pendant has a wonderful, curving outline and the top is accented with two twinkling green pastes. In the centre is a stylised and raised woman’s face. Her bandeau is set with a further paste. Her eyes appear closed and her mouth is open.

At the top is a ring and a bail. The back is blank.

This lovely piece of Secessionist art is in fine condition with the natural patina of age. It will arrive in a gift box.
